ISIL, Turkish Army, Ankara-Backed Militants Leave Al-Bab in Ruins
Syria has been mired in bloody war since March 2011, with Damascus forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad fighting numerous terrorist groups. Turkey and Ankara-backed militants launched 'Euphrates Shield' military operation in Syria in August 2016. Since then, tens of civilians have been massacred in bloody battle between militants and the ISIL, while the town has suffered massive destruction.
